My prediction is that Stubbs is going to lose his job again. You can't be a basestealer and have a .300 OBP and potential to break the league strikeout record. If I am right the question will be whether or not Gomes is playing bad enough for Dusty to use Edmonds or if Stubbs will split time with Edmonds in center. I think becuase the Reds are winning Dusty isn't changing the line-up.
I'm not sure if Heisey will be the initial beneficiary of a Stubbs benching with the addition of Edmonds. I am not sure what Heisey has to do to make Dusty's line-up. Having said that, Heisey will not be sent down if Cabrera gets the call. The team would lose his bat for the playoffs and the fans would be all over Dusty and the GM. That is why Heisey wasn't sent down when Edmonds came.
If Dusty decides to stick with Stubbs I think the Reds won't make it past the first round of the playoffs.
